The development of renewable energy and increased energy efficiency in residential, industrial sectors, transport and agriculture are among the priorities of the Moldova 2020 development strategy (2012). An adequate institutional framework was established with the adoption of the Energy Strategy until 2020 (2007), the National Program on Ensuring Environmental Security for 2007-2015, the Law on Renewable Energy (2007), the Law on Energy Efficiency (2010), the National Energy Efficiency Programme 2011-2020 and the Energy Efficiency Agency. A gradual approximation of the national legislation with the relevant EU acquis is underway.
Renewable energy law: increasing the use of energy produced from renewable sources up to 20% of the total gross domestic consumption and 10% of annual electricity production by 2020, feed-in tariffs established for a 15-year period;
Energy efficiency: planned gradual increase of energy efficiency by up to 20% by 2020, planned creation of an Energy Efficiency Fund;
Sustainable energy action plan launched by EBRD in 2011 in order to improve the environment for sustainable energy investments in various sectors of the Moldovan economy.
